The BHS Principles of Engineering team won Best Presentation. Team members include Chris Richardson, Deven Singleton, and Casey Allen. Under time and cost constraints, the team designed, built, and tested a device to contain a product load released with a remote dump feature on the end of a support arm; all cantilevered off the edge of a table top.

The Introduction to Engineering Design Team took home the 2015 championship trophy as they captured first place by narrowly beating out a strong Dutch Fork team. Team members include Anna Kate D’Angelo, Jackie Kim, and Lucas Cato. The team reverse engineered a series of toys for a company whose engineering records had been destroyed by fire.

BHS has participated in the state competition the last five years, winning two State Championships and one State Runners-up titles.
